This tractor arrived in NZ on the Ship "Baden" on 18th September 1951 and was purchased by Graham Simpson of Mataura Island. The agents were Gough Gough and Hamer, Invercargill Branch. It was taken over by his son Alvin and in August 1978 it was sold to Hugh Johnstone in Christchurch.
We purchased it from the Estate of Hugh Johnstone in October 2007 and repainted and tidied up in 2008.
